This image of the world was generated with data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM). The SRTM Project has recently released a new global data set called SRTM30, where the original one arcsecond of latitude and longitude resolution (about 30 meters, or 98 feet, at the equator) was reduced to 30 arcseconds (about 928 meters, or 3045 feet.)

JSC2000E-01557 (January 2000) --- This partially computer-generated scene depicts anticipated coverage by the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) of topographic features on Earth. Heavy cloud cover, hurricanes and cyclonic storms can prevent optical cameras on satellites or aircraft from imaging some areas. SRTM radar, with its long wavelength, will penetrate clouds as well as providing its own illumination, making it independent of daylight.

Geographers long agreed that, while the Amazon might be the world's largest river by volume, the longest was likely the Nile. In 2007, however, the news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/6759291.stm BBC reported that a team of Brazilian researchers challenged that long-held belief. After an expedition to Peru to locate the Amazon's precise source, the team described a different starting point. The team claimed that the river originated not in northern Peru, where it had been thought to begin, but in south...

Along the coast of California, the tectonic plate underlying the Pacific Ocean and the plate harboring the North American landmass meet at the San Andreas Fault. Intense pressure builds up along the fault as the two plates grind past each other, the Pacific Plate moving northwest relative to the North American Plate.
